gamescom cosplay village


Bigger, calmer, cozier – after the rush last year the cosplay village 2017 experienced a few changes. The own area for cosplayers have been placed in hall 10.2 this year. That meant significantly more space and a quiet position.

Next to attractions like the cosplay stage or the drawer’s garden, professional supervised photo booths have been available to have your costumes photographed for free. The most impressive cosplays have been honored within the ‚daily cosplay treat‘ with exciting prizes.

Comfortable seating invited to relax and chill out and also for the culinary well-being has been taken care of, because this year there have been an own catering area directly in the village.

Thus there have been nothing in the way of a cosy gettogether.

Transformation in focus!

On Saturday between 14 and 16 pm cosplayer and crafter showed their work on the social media stage. They have been the focus and they presented themselves in an unique show. Great prices waited in various categories for the winners.

The cosplay contest was a highlight for all people involved, the participants, the jury and the audience and thus creates a programm duty!
